SDCC 2012: Peter Cullen Roundtable Interview

Below is the roundtable interview that Peter Cullen (voice of Optimus Prime) has with the press as part of his "Optimus Prime: Up Close and Personal" panel (highlights | video) from last weekend at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con. In the thirty minute press Q&A, Cullen discussed getting the role, the inspiration for the Optimus voice, what it takes to be a leader, and more.
"When I realized the effect [Transformers] had on children, it became a responsibility. ...I am not going to let them down. I am not going to let any fan down. If they love Optimus Prime for what he is i'll be damned if I am going to change anything. If he's been a good influence I am going to keep making him a good influence and make him a better influence if I can for children all over the world."


  1. that was awesome. Cullen will always and forever be prime.

  2. its cool

  3. Truly a CLASS ACT !!!

  4. I wished that Mr. Cullen would've got up out of his seat and smacked the hell of the idiot that asked him where did he get the inspiration for how Optimus would be like if he got the role....all fans know he based it off his brother, and if Cullen couldn't smack him too bad somebody didn't

    just saying
